The lead singer of Old Dominion, Matthew Ramsey landed himself in the hospital after falling off a ladder.

An image of the country artist sitting in a hospital bed was posted on the band’s official Instagram page. According to the post, he was changing a lightbulb when he fell off the ladder but he did inform people that he suffered a broken rib as well as a collapsed lung.

Fortunately, he is back at home recovering. In the post he even cautioned others to have a spotter handy while using a ladder:

“How many OD members does it take to change a lightbulb? Well, after a broken rib, collapsed lung, and various scrapes and bruises, I found out the answer is “More than one.” Back home and recovering now with all the fun pills. Y’all be careful out there and get someone to hold your ladder. -m”
